Note: Certified health information technology (health IT) meets the technological capability, functionality, and security requirements adopted by the Department of Health and Human Services. The order above reflects vendors of commercial certified health IT only; totals for self-developed certified health IT are summarized as a whole. 2014 certified health IT is certified under the 2014 Edition Health Information Technology Certification Critiera, and 2011 certified health IT is certified under the 2011 Edition Health Information Technology Certification Criteria.
